The Daily Telegraph has published a recording of a phone conversation between the Culture Secretary's adviser and one of its reporters investigating her expense claims in 2012, in which the aide "flagged up" her boss' role in the future of press regulation.
The paper has previously reported details of their conversation.
The Sun could be set to follow the lead of other UK newspapers in charging readers to view online content.
Fellow News International publications The Times and Sunday Times introduced a paywall in July 2010.
The Daily Telegraph has said the cross-party deal on press regulation "deserves careful consideration."
The near unanimity in Parliament yesterday in support of the new approach was a powerful indication of how far the press needs to move in order to restore faith in its regulatory structure.
The three party leaders urged the newspaper industry to endorse the new dispensation as quickly as possible. However, after 318 years of a free press, its detail deserves careful consideration.
It also says that the Prime Minister should admit the plans do involve legislation:
So for all Mr Cameron’s protestations, the distinction between his proposed regime and statutory regulation is a semantic one.
As Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, observed, the solution involves a mixture of Royal Charter and statute.

The Culture Secretary receives the backing of the Prime Minister but faces a potentially lengthy investigation into her expenses, reports ITV News' Political Correspondent Alex Forrest:
The Daily Telegraph has published a timeline of the sequence of events over its investigation and subsequent reporting of the Culture Secretary's expense claims "to set the record straight."
It says it was contacted by a source about the story nearly a month ago - on November 17.
It has also published emails between Maria Miller and the paper's editor Tony Gallagher:
The Prime Minister told reporters that Maria Miller has "excellent answers" to all questions being asked about her expenses.
David Cameron has given his backing to Culture Secretary Maria Miller amid questions over her expenses.
"Maria Miller does an absolutely excellent job and she has my full support," the Prime Minister told reporters as he arrived at the EU Summit in Brussels.
"A newspaper has asked her a number of questions and as far as I can see she has excellent answers to all those questions," he added.
Maria Miller has denied that she had used her position overseeing the post-Leveson reforms of press regulation to ward off the Telegraph. She told the Evening Standard:
This has nothing to do with the Leveson inquiry. My concern is that any investigation is done in accordance with the rules, the Editors' Code. What I did was to contact the editor of the Telegraph directly to express my concern at the way his investigation was being undertaken.
The journalist hadn't contacted my office first. She had doorstepped a member of my family, a person who is not in public life, a person ill-equipped to deal with national media inquiries on my behalf.
Mrs Miller's special adviser, Joanna Hindley, reportedly told Telegraph reporters investigating her expenses: "Maria has obviously been having quite a lot of editors' meetings around Leveson at the moment. I am just going to flag up that connection for you to think about."
